Flight comparison website Skycanner.net has formed a partnership with hostel booking website Hostelworld.com, in order for Hostelworld.com to enhance its functionality and user experience for customers.

Skyscanner’s flight search tool will provide Hostelworld.com’s customers with comparisons on more than 670,000 flights across 600 countries.

“We are extremely excited to be rolling out our technology with such a hugely successful travel brand,” said Frank Skivington, Skyscanner’s director of sales and marketing.

“Our monthly flight search tool is perfect for Hostelworld.com customers looking for the cheapest flights, as users don’t have to specify dates or even destinations.”

“The breadth of the Hostelworld.com customer base also presents a real opportunity for Skyscanner as they book online reservations for over 25,000 hostels and budget hotels in 180 countries worldwide,” said Skivington.

“We are delighted to announce our partnership with Skyscanner. Their comprehensive flight search tool will provide our customers with the added value of being able to search for cheap flights whilst booking accommodation, making travel even more affordable,” said Santina Doherty, VP of Commercial Development with Hostelworld.com.

“This partnership further strengthens our commitment to our customers by providing them with the best possible tools for planning and booking independent travel.”
